Default Your Lawn Service Will Treat For Moles, But...

...how about this solution that was passed on to me by a greenskeeper on a Michigan golf course.

Because of the vast amount of grass that would need to be chemically treated to get rid of the grubs or other insects that are the mole's food, the cost would be prohibitive for a golf course. This guy had a technique for getting rid of the moles themselves. He bought a supply of bubble gum and went out looking for "mole holes". He would then unwrap a piece of bubble gum without touching it with his fingers and drop it in the hole. Apparently the moles are attracted to the sweet smell and taste of the gum, but when they try to eat it they choke on it and proceed to meet the big mole-maker in the sky. This greenskeeper said he'd been using this effective and cheap technique to eliminate moles for years. If you don't have a lawn service, it might be cheap enough to at least give it a try.

Or, buy a bag of GrubX. That will kill the grubs or cinches and drive the moles to your neighbor's lawn.
